    This is a great recipe my whole family loves. Chicken is coated in spices, fried, then simmered gently in orange juice.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) orange juice

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Combine the salt, pepper, hot paprika, cumin, cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spices on the chicken using all of the spice mixture.
    2. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken in the hot oil for 4 minutes. Turn the chicken and lower heat to medium-low. Pour in the orange juice; simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 7 minutes. Serve the chicken with a bit of the pan sauce spooned over the each piece.


    chicken stock can be used instead of the orange juice for a less sweet dish.


    Chicken thighs work well in this dish also.
